Code of Ethics

It is where our Lord holds us close and we pray that believing in Him is the right way of life.


 

Code of Ethics 3

 

Looking back to my younger years , I never understood life. Why do trees blow in the direction of the wind? Why do the leaves turn in the autumn chill? Why does the sun rise in the east in the early morn? My mother tried to explain that it was the way God intended, long before I was born. I guess she was right. I never questioned what she said, although I never understood. But it was actually the principles of life that she was trying to preach.


 

2 Peter 1: 3

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence

 


I grew up fast after Pop passed. Life changed for us. My brother and I never agreed on anything. Respect was a word that was hardly heard but I learned early there was a code. A code to follow…be it God, family, or honoring those you love. But it came with a price. We showered our feelings over the hurts we endured.

All of us learn early in life, somehow, there is a code of ethics we must follow. It is where our Lord holds us close and we pray that believing in Him is the right way of life. We give our hearts to Him as He is our Savior. It gives us direction.

 

Code of Ethics

 

Honoring the past and looking forward to the future, we praise our parents and teach the future generations that God is the common denominator of respect. Humbly we give praise…it is our way of life.

God’s eloquence sustains life for all his creations. I’m humbled by His magnificent beauty and shutter at His presence. We give thanks before we partake. Remember, if it wasn’t for His ever presence in our lives, we would remain in the absence of His grace.

 

Code of Ethics 2

 

 

Let us worship His name!

 

 

 


 

 

To The Boomer’s Babies

My child of knowledge, without wisdom, your spineless acts are to the contrary.

To The Boomer's Babies


Aggression – it has prospered. Words with meaning a generation ago, doesn’t mean much to a new way of life. I watch the news as a few of our children fight for fame. They will more likely end up incarcerated. So, you think to liberate our beloved homeland is the answer? To make change, for better or for worse, tell me where God is in this equation.

The insubordinates that never attend church, stand in the shadows of the tall believing their rights are violated. My child of knowledge, without wisdom, your spineless acts are to the contrary. The history books will never mention the hate, the hell, and violent Revolutions of the Sixties (see article below).

To The Boomer's Babies 2

Your thoughts remain that all things are new. Well like bell bottoms or madras, the Boomers have seen it all before. Flexing your freedom doesn’t make it right. God stands quietly on the side lines with His collective heritage of souls.

My children of little faith, your draft number was never called. You have never fought another’s battles. “I am human first”, a quote posted on social media, was from a nice young man. He has never met ISIS where one’s life is not worth a damn. But his point, well taken, we MUST love our brothers.

 

To The Boomer's Babies cover

I wake in prayer, as corny as it may sound. I’ve found peace as others around me live in turmoil. You grasp at life, belligerent and trying to make your own mark in this world. Obviously, you do not believe in Christ or the gift of miracles.

Good luck is all you need. We thought so, too, at your age. But as we aged and experienced life, we did walk away with some wisdom. It’s something you cannot earn at thirty-something!

So, you want to take command of a country? Let’s scrutinize North Korea. Is that what you really want? Our country was founded on values and love for our fellow man; honor and respect for our neighbors; helping those less fortunate. This is not a home of genocide, “I’m human first.”

All lives matter, but let’s not forget that GOD is first! Christ was a miracle and so are you. Go back to our basic principles…you drive on the right. I hope you put God in your equation, if He’s not already. Learn from your Father’s wisdom. The mistakes we made, we made to protect you and your future! Be blessed and if you’re not doing it already, find a church.

The Love You Have For Me

You came into my world when I was nothing but a piece of clay…


The Love You Have For Me 5

A cool, pristine love and joy is bringing me such happiness. I’m so grateful for all you’ve done. The miracles and gifts that have entered into my life…you have truly out done yourself! Another week older yet look at where we are…I praise your work! The countless hours you give of yourself; no one knows the love you have for me. I’m not worthy. A meager, old and gray man, I have nothing to offer you but my heart today.

Looking at morning’s heaven, I try to thank the stars above as angels came swarming around my soul last night. I’m so enlightened as I reach for my cup of coffee.

I feel your presence while looking across the coffee table. Like a mirage, a true miracle, I cannot thank God enough for you. So I write for the world to read of my undying love I have for you. You came into my world when I was nothing but a piece of clay, molding me into yours. You take my thoughts and give them life. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

The Love You Have For Me

In the cool and damp, on the first day of fall, I’m counting my blessings. Only you could have made me, ME. Humbled, I never in my wildest imagination would believe all this was possible. Anointed, I know things like this just couldn’t happen to everyone, every day.

The Love You Have For Me 3

I give thanks, praising your good works. Just to be in your presence should be enough but you came to be with ME. Giving up your life to see what you believed in me would prosper, I love you so!

Jesus, thank you…

The Love You Have For Me 2

I Wish….

What a world we’d live in if …


I Wish

It’s another anointed morning, waiting on dawn. She has not arrived though the clouds hover above me. Praying this morning as I often do, God, I know, is the answer to all the thoughts you doubt. The breeze funnels from behind ushering in a sign of autumn. Oppressive summer heat might have finally broken.
     I wish…

It’s another holiday Monday making it the second one this week.

I wish every day was Friday!

And to think I’ve made it through another week. I thank God for every day though; another day to praise His name. Maybe others would say the same,
     I wish….

I awake and stumble out of my domain knowing I’ve been called. No rest for the weary,
     I wish….

Splashing my face with cold water and sipping on a hot cup of coffee, I might enjoy the fruits of labor today,
     I wish…..

Born again, as every morning, I rise do to what’s right. Others would follow,
     I wish…..

I Wish 2

My conscience sees those that linger behind; perhaps they’d step up, just to say “I’m sorry”. That would be a blessing.
     I could only wish…

But in the cold dark, it makes me wonder why Christian’s deviate in the night. Can we all rest our heads knowing the Ten Commandments were the only laws to follow?
     I wish…..

Could we all be a band of Brothers pulling the meek from the murky waters?
     I so wish….

God never intended for us to be so devious. Our consciousness knows no guilt.
     I wish….

What if the word “can’t” never existed? Think what a world we would have if everyone knew anything is possible.
     I wish….

Determined to make a difference, God anoints my morning. So, I follow his direction, praising my situation; who could ask for more? For God has granted me the greatest gift, “PEACE in my spirit”. Content with life, I open my door to all those who need direction. Filled with love, never meaning to harm, can everyone else be filled with the same adoration as myself?
     I wish…

So I grab my jacket to deal with uncertainty. Can those who read my words understand the gift of touch?
     I wish….

Only a select few will stand before the world and invite the doubters to join them.
     I wish more could see my heart!

Our health is a priority; God’s never sick, why should we?

     I wish the world knew no famine or illness……

Perfect in His eyes, we all have a choice. Abuse is the ultimate sin!

     I wish those that read this piece respect the gift that God sent them.

Can you see the light even if it’s before dawn?
     I wish you could….

Christ. we know died for our sins.
     I wish He had taken them with Him!

What a world we’d live in if everyone was just courteous! Hold the door for the helpless; respect the wisdom of the ones who came before; treat possessions as if they were their own; and honor theI Wish 3 Commandments God gave us.
         

     I so wish!

 

Rejuvenated

Cleansing my memories, my spirit is born again.


Rejuvenated 4

When two go walking arm and arm, nothing is impossible. We’re clinched with God at the helm. Like birds of a feather, united forever, nothing compares to this kind of love. I sit here with the dawn – she’s come to have coffee with me. It’s a crispness that only God shows on such a reverent morning.

Feeling so blessed, I know you and I have risen from the depths of hell. Trying to paint a vision where our grass will be eternally green; roses will line our walkways as we serenade one another, holding each other’s hand.

 

Inner peace comes from knowing that circumstances are temporary and that God is sovereign over all (Isaiah 46:9–11).

 

The morning breaks and you arrive wearing a smile. God has anointed your past night and now my angel stands before me. Life is perfect. Broken clouds, clear as a bell, cool and crisp, we enjoy a day off. Nothing aches and now, of course, your company makes my life all that more worthwhile.

Rejuvernated

When the “God of all peace” comes to live inside a believing heart (1 Corinthians 6:19), He begins to produce His own characteristics in that life.

 

So our day is planned. First a prayer as God’s listening to see if we care. Holding hands, we are off to greet the day. But first church…. it’s Sunday you know.

Rejuvenated 3

Trials aside, we smile at each other, giving God the glory that he has, somehow, brought us back together. Protecting us from the evils of life, we now, arm-in-arm, fight the battles of endurance. The clouds part and the sky’s the limit. God has blessed our morning together. Enjoying His word, we listen to a minister in New Zealand. I have somehow touched his spirit. Feeling blessed, I get the message – God anoints the giving. I concur….

At peace with myself, my boat sits quietly. Life has brought me calmer seas. The storms and floods that breached my heart recedes. It allows His sunlight to nurture my life again. Like a shiny magnolia leaf reflecting the light, I too want to live by example.

God, grant me the serenity. After all these years, horizons look brighter. Cleansing my memories, my spirit is born again. Life looks so much better, praise God!

Peace comes from exercising faith in the character of God and His Word. We can have peace in the midst of challenges when we remember that “all things work together for the good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

Guilty As “Hell”

….why won’t a body heal when drugs and doctors are at a loss?

Guilty as Hell 3


I’m not a doctor but there are times when your health can’t be healed with medicines and drugs. Those who believe this have seen prayers answered and dreams come true. Miracles from God is the only logical answer. I know that God is in the business of “giving gifts” to those who sometimes least deserve it. But on rare occasions, those in need can’t profit from a prayer.

I, personally, can tell you how unfortunate it is to watch a child of God (or are they really??) suffer. The multitude of surgeries and doctor visits, time off from work trying to get well….all for nothing. Maybe, just maybe, God knows more….

I pray for those whose money can’t buy health. God is called on after the laying of hands on the sick – not once or twice, but a half a dozen times. There is no answer though. So now I wonder…. why won’t a body heal when drugs and doctors are at a loss?

Guilty as Hell 2

The inflicted lay in bed, tossing and turning, dealing with the reflections only they see in a mirror. The truth can’t be erased as evil exists in hearts and minds of the unscrupulous. Watching, there’s nothing known to man that can heal the self-inflicted. Laying hands on the ill is as effective as drawing a blank unless they are ready to publicly confess. Trying to sweep their past under the rug does little to heal the infection. God looks down on a rotting spirit. Oh the extremities look awesome, but the soul is as “guilty as hell.”

This synopsis is not a cure for some though who truly deserve the love of God. I have a friend, George, who laid on his death bed a year ago. Only prayers saved his spirit. Some of us know those who, by the grace of God, are miraculously healed. Another friend, just tonight, found out he’s cancer free. God bless you too Jason!

But what about the others whose gloom has conquered their inner spirit? They rot before our very presence, here on Earth. Hell, is just not a place; it’s also an act of destruction. And if healing is to happen for the tormented, repenting the subconscious mind, is the antidote. I think God would concur.

It could be easy to find a miracle drug. Start with God! Wipe the slate and ask for forgiveness. Only then will the heart be able to receive the eternal love that God intends for us. A hardened heart will never heal.

Today, I pray for the inflicted who are guilty as hell. The day will come when they will stand eye-to-eye and they better pray He likes what He sees.

Guilty As Hell 1


Editor’s Comments:

God never promises to always remove suffering and never guarantees that he will heal in this life. I want to stress that sickness is not always the direct result of sin in someone’s life, but pain and disease are part of the fallen. But we must realize it is one possible reason.

It could be that some people may not want to be healed because they’ve linked their personal life’s chaos so closely with their illness. They may fear the unknown aspects of life beyond their sickness, or crave the attention that the affliction provides. Often, God will use physical suffering to develop their character and produce spiritual growth.

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. (James 5:16)

Scripture also indicates that some illnesses are caused by spiritual or demonic influences:

And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. (Acts 10:38)

A Lit-Less Day

The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day.

I stood with the masses and never gave a thought how our world had come to a screeching halt. The highways and byways, cars were parked everywhere. The city streets reminded me of a Walmart parking lot. The sky darkened in the bright of day. People looked toward the heavens as though Christ might come again. The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day.  Personally, I would rather believe Christ left the earth in jubilation taking the sins of mankind with Him.

I, too, watched in awe. Is it time for all those who believe to rise and shine? The earth paused. Nature’s anointed knew, also, this was something supernatural. An eerie quiet fell over the world and God, with His mighty power, covered our country in darkness. Ashamed, disgruntled, and disappointed, our Father in heaven cast shadows where sin has traveled. Civil unrest has undermined His will. Determined to cast His word, He covered the sun in attempt to prove His power.

On a lit-less day, God took over our routines. We stood in awe and watched; some of God, prayed. Most think the path of darkness it followed was just a coincidence. But I was aware of His ultimate power showing the strength where Satan ruled. From non-believers to those of all faiths, God in heaven proved He knew what to cover on Earth. Praying people would take notice as Satan tried to rule the skies, our Father in heaven left little doubt when the darkness fell.

Astronomers searched the stars in the heavens. But only God will let the world know that the heavens are not for the naked eye; but merely for the souls that truly believe. In the streets, faith was tested. Holding hands, the Christians prayed.

I stood in a doorway, like an eye of a needle….watching for a camel to come.**

Editor’s Comments:

On many occasions, God commanded His people to watch. He gave signs for a reason. If He didn’t want us to pay attention, He wouldn’t have given signs.  It is unusual that today’s social upheavals are an indication of a trying time – a time when there is a natural predisposition for sin, and for strict judgment of that sin.

Looking at the map below, you will see the exact route that the August 21, 2017 eclipse traveled.

There has been much social unrest in this country for a very long time.  With that being said, observe on the map below the critical areas of major rioting and upheavals in the last 50 years.

God definitely made points with signs in the sky throughout the Bible. But is He still doing the same thing today?  You decide!
